I've got jo baz on my head atm (btw it STINKS!)

I'm trying to remove a really really stupid mistake I made. Faded my turquoise so it was really pale and then bb which made the mid-lengths super green and the rest kinda blonde so I stuck miji contrast (or whatever its called) in magenta with directions flamingo pink mixed together over it. It looked dark in the pot but apparently I used too much FP and it came out an uneven neon washy pink. I hate it. I love deep pinks like cerise and this is way to light. Its like a neon baby pink with weird greeny-purple bits.

I also have Decolour remover by scott cornwell, it says it removes semis as well as permanents. Do you think I'll end up needing to use it?

there really is no way of telling until you've washed it out & its dry.

so did you bleach bath and then apply a peroxide based dye? thats bad for your hair =( also if you mixed the peroxide based dye with FP that coukd be why it's wishy washy

I didn't mix it with the peroxide, I just used it outta the tube and mixed it with FP. It says on it that it contains ammonia but I kinda thought that'd be okays with a semi cause I wasn't adding any bleach. Is that still bad for my hair? :( I need to pay more attention to what I'm doing. I'm only checking the ingredients now! Feel kinda stupid for thinking it wouldn't be damaging without the bleach mixed in :(

If you didn't use the peroxide, this could explain why it didn't work very well.  The majicontrast dyes are designed to be used with a peroxide developer as they're a lift-and-deposit dye.  They can be used without peroxide, but they're still meant to be mixed to get the right consistency.  I've heard of people mixing them with water to get the consistency right if they didn't want to use the peroxide, but haven't tried this myself.

Well it evened out the colour a LOT and faded the green to a lilic/lavander colour which is still kinda obvious but nowhere near as bad. It took some of the roots back to the blonde it was before I dyed it so over all a really good result! :D

hey, just a quick question: you know the way you're advised to leave a few washes between color b4 and bleaching, so it doesn't re-oxidise and make your hair dark again? can going swimming re-oxidise color b4 then, as chlorine acts as a bleach?

That's a good question!  I'm not entirely certain, as I don't know what the chemical reaction is that produces the reoxidiation.  I'm guessing it's the peroxide that does it, but again that's just a guess.

Sooooooooooo, I need a bit of help.

I don't dye all my hair, only a portion (About 1/4 of my hair is dyed) I'm worried that I'm bleaching my hair too often. (I only started dying my hair a year ago. It started a small strip, but I always wanted more, so I just continued to bleach it almost every time before I redyed it.)

As of right now, I have a few different faded colors. I had originally dyed part of my hair pink and part of it blue. The pink is completely gone now, leaving just the bleached blonde/whiteish color(I last dyed it about 2 1/2 maybe 3 months ago with a semi dye) but the blue faded to a green. Some of the green is turquoise and very light, but in the very front, I have a kinda dark, nastyish green.

I was going to try colorb4 to get it out, but there's a few things I'm worried about:
1. Would it lighten or mess up my non dyed hair/Roots?
2. Is it hard to use by yourself? (My friend and I usually dye our hair together. She does mine and I do hers. But as of now, she's on a trip, and I really want to try and rid myself of the green now.)

I know it may not even work that well, but I'm just really worried about my non-dyed hair.

Colour b4 doesnt affect natural hair, so it'll do nothing to your roots. It doesn't lighten hair at all, it removes unnatural pigments.

It's basically like spreading shampoo through your hair. You don't need anyone else to help. Just make sure you spread it well.

So it shouldn't matter if it gets in the Sections that arent dyed? Im thinking of just putting it in all of my hair then, it'd probably be easier then trying to spot every stray piece.

Yeah, it won't matter. But it is quite drying, so,it might be worth avoiding putting it all over, it it getting on natural hair is fine, so no harm if it does get covered.

Used Decolour Remover today on my turq/purple/pink and it's done a pretty good job! I don't have a before pic, but the colours were all pretty newly topped up. Now I have a quite pretty mix of pastels and even some silver!

It looks rather darker in the photos though, annoyingly.

I was never all that happy with the purple, never liked Purple on me anyway. But I was hoping it would make me happy in the peacock colours, and I sort of did like it. But then it just took over too much no matter how careful I was!
I'm going for either flamingo pink, bubblegum blue and something else or a pink and hi octane orange... Or something!

Yeah, it really shocked me as originally the purple bit was about 2cm thick, now it's about 6cm and had turned a far bit of the turquoise to a true blue! Of course, the green was I history within about a week and a half, stripped just that and covered it with pink which obviously got more and more purple toned... Just not what I wanted. Ah well, live and learn lol

I'm definitely leaning toward doing blue, pink and orange... But I'm going to live with the for a while as I want to see how much I like being pastellish. I didn't think I'd like it at all because I like bright jewel colours mostly, at the moment though, I think I'm changing my mind. Not sure how well itll go with my clothes though as everything is strong colours!

Yeah, I suspect I'll be the same :D I still have the thought in the back of my mind to order some more decolour to fade out some more, so obviously not too attached this. I only did it today because my hair was in desperate need of a wash, I was going to wait until I'd got some more in a couple of weeks. By I thought sod it and did it. Meant I had to work later into the evening though lol only just finished in fact!
